[texts]Tailoring PDC speckle structure - G. Brida
Speckle structure of parametric down conversion light has recently received a large attention due to relevance in view of applications to quantum imaging The possibility of tailoring the speckle size by acting on the pump properties is an interesting tool for the applications to quantum imaging and in particular to the detection of weak object under shot-noise limit. Here we present a systematic detailed experimental study of the speckle structure produced in type II PDC with particular attentio...

[texts]Tailoring ferromagnetic chalcopyrites - Steven C. Erwin
If magnetic semiconductors are ever to find wide application in real spintronic devices, their magnetic and electronic properties will require tailoring in much the same way that band gaps are engineered in conventional semiconductors. Unfortunately, no systematic understanding yet exists of how, or even whether, properties such as Curie temperatures and band gaps are related in magnetic semiconductors...

[texts]Tailoring Chirp in Spin-Lasers - Guilhem Boeris
The usefulness of semiconductor lasers is often limited by the undesired frequency modulation, or chirp, a direct consequence of the intensity modulation and carrier dependence of the refractive index in the gain medium. In spin-lasers, realized by injecting, optically or electrically, spin-polarized carriers, we elucidate paths to tailoring chirp. We provide a generalized expression for chirp in spin-lasers and introduce modulation schemes that could simultaneously eliminate chirp and enhance t...

[texts]Tailoring Magnetism in Quantum Dots - Ramin M. Abolfath
We study magnetism in magnetically doped quantum dots as a function of confining potential, particle numbers, temperature, and strength of Coulomb interactions. We explore possibility of tailoring magnetism by controlling the electron-electron Coulomb interaction, without changing the number of particles. The interplay of strong Coulomb interactions and quantum confinement leads to enhanced inhomogeneous magnetization which persist at higher temperatures than in the non-interacting case...

[texts]Tailoring polarization entanglement in anisotropy-compensated SPDC - Giorgio Brida
We show that the angular spectrum of type-II SPDC contains a continuum of maximally entangled states. For the realization of a bright source of entangled two-photon states, a standard technique is to compensate for the transverse walk-off in the production crystal. We demonstrate that polarization entangled states can be effectively engineered by generalizing this approach. Our method allows to considerably enrich the set of generated entangled states with a controlled tailoring them.

[texts]Stiffness and strength tailoring in uniform space-filling truss structures - Lake, Mark S
This paper presents a deterministic procedure for tailoring the continuum stiffness and strength of uniform space-filling truss structures through the appropriate selection of truss geometry and member sizes (i.e., flexural and axial stiffnesses and length). The trusses considered herein are generated by replication of a characteristic truss cell uniformly through space. The repeating cells are categorized by one of a set of possible geometric symmetry groups derived using the techniques of crys...

Applications ranging from nonlinear terahertz spectroscopy to remote sensing require broadband and intense THz radiation which can be generated by focusing two-color laser pulses into a gas. In this setup, THz radiation originates from the buildup of the electron density in sharp steps of attosecond duration due to tunnel ionization, and subsequent acceleration of free electrons in the laser field...

Diffusive transport is characterized by the scaling law $(length)^{2}\propto(time)$. In this letter we show that this relationship is significantly altered in curved analogue spacetimes.

[texts]ERIC ED297012: The Rasch Model and Missing Data, with an Emphasis on Tailoring Test Items. - ERIC
Many applications of educational testing have a missing data aspect (MDA). This MDA is perhaps most pronounced in item banking, where each examinee responds to a different subtest of items from a large item pool and where both person and item parameter estimates are needed. The Rasch model is emphasized, and its non-parametric counterpart (the Mokken scale) is considered. The possibility of tailoring test items in combination with their estimation is discussed; however, most methods for the esti...

[texts]Tailoring of motional states in double-well potentials by time-dependent processes - Kari Harkonen
We show that the vibrational state tailoring method developed for molecular systems can be applied for cold atoms in optical lattices. The original method is based on a three-level model interacting with two strong laser pulses in a counterintuitive sequence [M. Rodriguez et al., Phys. Rev. A 62, 053413 (2000)]. Here we outline the conditions for achieving similar dynamics with single time-dependent potential surfaces...

[texts]Tailoring population inversion in Landau-Zener-Stückelberg interferometry of flux qubits - Alejandro Ferron
We distinguish different mechanisms for population inversion in flux qubits driven by dc+ac magnetic fields. We show that for driving amplitudes such that there are Landau-Zener-St\"uckelberg intereferences, it is possible to have population inversion solely mediated by the environmental bath at long driving times. We study the effect of the resonant frequency $\Omega_p$ of the measuring circuit, finding different regimes for the asymptotic population of the state of the flux qubit...

[texts]Phase space tweezers for tailoring cavity fields by quantum Zeno dynamics - Jean-Michel Raimond
We discuss an implementation of Quantum Zeno Dynamics in a Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics experiment. By performing repeated unitary operations on atoms coupled to the field, we restrict the field evolution in chosen subspaces of the total Hilbert space. This procedure leads to promising methods for tailoring non-classical states. We propose to realize `tweezers' picking a coherent field at a point in phase space and moving it towards an arbitrary final position without affecting other non-overl...

Under spatially uniform optical pumping, the first lasing mode in a GaAs microstadium with large major-to-minor-axis ratio usually corresponds to a high-quality scar mode consisting of several unstable periodic orbits. Interference of waves propagating along the constituent orbits may minimize light leakage at particular major-to-minor-axis ratio...

We introduce a refinement of the standard continuous variable teleportation measurement and displacement strategies. This refinement makes use of prior knowledge about the target state and the partial information carried by the classical channel when entanglement is non-maximal. This gives an improvement in the output quality of the protocol. The strategies we introduce could be used in current continuous variable teleportation experiments.

In this article we review a recent calculation of the two-loop $\sigma$-model corrections to the T-duality map in string theory. Using the effective action approach, and focusing on backgrounds with a single Abelian isometry, we give the $O(\alpha')$ modifications of the lowest-order duality transformations. The torsion plays an important role in the theory to $O(\alpha')$, because of the Chern-Simons couplings to the gauge fields that arise via dimensional reduction.
